New Song By Stationary Nomads - A Mind Is A Terrible Thing



I have a new song uploaded at bandcamp called A Mind Is A Terrible Thing which you can download for free or just stream it. It's a spoken word style vocal delivery and I had the idea for at least the last few years. Aaron had sent me some songs he had already recorded and one night as I listened to them over and over and over I realized that one had the perfect tempo and tone for my idea. I knew I had to bust my butt to come up with the words that would match the music. Thus did "A Mind" move from idea to reality.

If you're wondering how I first thought about this strange subject, well, there used to be a show called In Living Color that ran in the early 90s. It was where Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Damon Wayans and many others became very well known for their comedy. Daman Wayans had a character that would talk gibberish and it always seemed like he was making fun of people who would use big multi-syllabic words (see what I did there?) without actually knowing what they meant or how to properly use them in a ssentence.

I in turn thought it would make an interesting idea for someone to sing gibberish strung together for no good reason. So I did and now you can hear it. Ain't life grand?

My New Mini-Zine, Badly Drawn......On Purpose

I've been meaning to do this for a few weeks but sometimes I get in these moods where I don't take care of the things I need to and this happened during one of those moods. A few weeks back I (finally) completed my first ever mini-zine called Badly Drawn.....On Purpose. I dug out some old photos from the Warped Tour that I went to in 1998 in Pittsburgh. I then drew some of those pictures in ink because well, why not? They were never intended to really look all that much like the actual photos. Even if I wanted them to, come on, doing it with an ink pen would require far greater artistic talent than I possess. The idea was just to have fun with it.


At first I thought I'd do it as a one-off project but now I want to continue doing it and next up I'm going to try some drawings from pictures taken at some of the ska shows I went to in the latter part of the 90s. You know, when ska was supposed to be the next big thing the major labels ruined, but it never came to fruition. Instead they signed a bunch of bands that kinda sorta sounded ska-ish and the real ska never quite broke all the way through. What better way to document that period of time than with crappy drawings that virtually nobody will see? Am I right? Stay tuned, there's plenty more great ideas like that one swimming around in the mush that is called my brain.

You can get the results of my wonderful artistic vision locally at Holy Mountain for the extra low price of FREE! I'm sure there are plenty of copies left. If you can't or don't want to go to an actual record store here in Tulsa then you have bigger issues than I can help solve. However just let me know and I will happily mail as many copies to you as your little heart desires. Never let it be said that I didn't do my part to make humanity better. Usually I do that by not involving myself with humanity but sometimes I have to put myself out there on a limb, emotionally naked (not like that sicko, I said emotionally) for all to abuse. Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
